Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 5, 1773------------------------- 26.5 million sawlogs cut at Nelson forest CRANBROOK, B.C. Tally by the B.C. Forest Service for the vast Nelson Forest Dis- trict, which covers East and West Kootenay-Boundary and north to Mica Dam, shows cubic feet of sawlogs for August, up only slightly from the corresponding month Of 1972. Species analysis shows spruce firmly back as leader at more than cubic feet, while hemlock placed sec- ond and cedar third almost tied at slightly more than cubic feet. Cedar's persistence among leading species is still probably due to pondage prep- aration for Mica Dam backup where vast cedar stands are being salvaged. While scales of the past sev- eral months continue usually high, industrial uncertainty ov- er provincial government's fail- ure to explain the crucial forest policy decisions contin- ues to ride the industry, pre- venting any firm plans for de- velopment or expansion. Com- munication block may be cracked at the fall legislative session which could then allow the necessary long-term pro- grams of resource use. Sawlog tally for 1973 to Aug. 31 now stands at cubic feet for Nelson Forest District, well ahead of the cubic feet for ihe com- parable period of 1972 Immedi- ately before market and price fluctuations which subsided somewhat in late spring, but unexpectedly invigorated as fall approached, particularly for American sales.

Toward its offer of sanitary sewage service in 1971 to Little Van Horne-Innis Avenue Confed- eration Park and as far as llth Street South, the city has given three readings to a by- law for sanitary sewer accessi- bility. The bylaw affects approxi- mately 105 properties including commercial to Guide's Store, motels, Confederation Park and private homes. Bylaw method is notification of each property-owner with 30 day allowance for protest. If 50 per cent object, the bylaw fails.

The enrolment figures are higher than projected in a sur- vey earlier this year. Enrol- ment increases have been ex- perienced at Central, Dr. Ham- roan, and W. R. Myers schools here due to new families mov- ing to town. Decreases at other schools, particularly Barnwell, tend to offset gains made in the town schools. city tnmk towaid the sewage lagoons. Ratepayers in the big triangle would pay the remain- ing in equivalent of long term local improvement levy. This amount would be for laterals to the trunk and the private individul connections.

Since final bylaw reading and passage seems unlikely before late autumn. 1974 tender call appears probable if the project is not opposed. The area is largely served with city water now, but its sani- tation continues on septic tanks and cess pools over a myster- ious underground water course which emerges from the oppo- site corner of the city in the vicinity of Victoria Avenue, now North 20th Avenue.

Residence assures children get to school BLOOD INDIAN RESERVE (Staff) They come from every shack dwelling, from every broken home and from every poverty ridden exis- tence on this Indian reserve. They are what some people, in what could be one of the KATIE WELLS biggest understatements of our time and nation, call the "un- derprivileged." They come to this huge brick building, not to study, but to get some warm food, some clean sheets, some companion- ship and some guidance. They are the young children, and the children old before their time, of the Blood Indian Reserve. They came to St. Paul's Stu- dent Residence on the weekend and to the hospitality of Angli- can minister Rev. Allan Mc- Cuaig, Katie Wells, head cook, and Margaret Goodrider, one of five child care workers at the "school." But it's not a school, it's a residence. And its chief func- tion is to see that Blood Indian children, with littie or no par- ental direction, are ready when the school buses come to the door. vSays Mr. McCuaig: "Ninety- eight per cent of the children here are from welfare, ghetto- shack-type homes. The only way they can attend school properly is from this resi- dence or from St. Mary's, its Catholic counterpart." St. Paul's Student Residence is financed by the department of Indian affairs but the Angli- can Church controls the ad- ministration. Mr. McCuaig was appointed four years ago by the Anglican bishop of the diocese in consul- tation with the tribal council and the department of Indian affairs. His main problem: keeping the kids in school. "Regular attendance 5n school by reserve chDdren is he says. "The Indian child's parents were never made to go to school. Parents of children who live here are common-law married, separ- ated, divorced no I shouldn't say that because divorce is prac- tically unknown and unneces- sary on the reserve the kids in here are under the care of a poor, old grandmolher, aunt or uncle who can't look after them." His job Is to see the the chil- dren are up in the morning, washed and ready for break- fast and ready for school buses that take them to schools at Cardston or Glenwood. Mr. McCuaig knows all the children. "I get down here be- i fore 7 a.m., I'm down there when they have breakfast, and I'm here when they say their prayers at night." Mrs. Frank (Margaret) Goodrider, one of five child- care workers at the residence, says it is extremely difficult to control the children. "They see other children run- ning around loose and if they get in contact with them, they think that they should do that too. Last year we started with 90 students and ended up in June with 37." Mrs. Katie Welis, head cook, says it's hard to know just how many will sit down to supper. "If anyone gets after them here they just walk out and leave for home. At 4 o'clock they're just not here." Despite the heavy incidence of St. Paul's Stu- dent Residence, about six miles northwest of Cardston, began its "mother role" on the week- end with about 75 students. They all trooped off to school Tuesday morning and Mr. Mc- Cuaig was there to see them off. MARGARET GOODRIDER ;
